HOW TO MAKE FROZEN S’MORES
Instead of having a chunk of chocolate that needed to be melted, we went with a generous slather of hot fudge topping. Make sure it’s the thick stuff!!
Lather a generous portion of fudge on one square of graham crackers. If you like chocolate go ahead and do both sides.
Then carefully plop some defrosted whipped topping to your graham cracker. if you try to do too much, it will make a huge mess when you add the top graham cracker.
Now for the messy and tricky part of these frozen s’mores dessert. Add the graham cracker topping and then roll into red white and blue sprinkles. Don’t squeeze too hard or it will all goop out of your sandwich.
